I wasn’t even driving dangerously either, he was saying be careful, he panicking and everything. All I was doing is just doing the speed limit so when it was 30 or when it was 40 I did 40 and he was saying I’m driving like a boy racer. Thence told me to pull up, he started shouting at me shouting “you are not a ****ing boy racer you **** you need to slow the **** down” people we were looking into the car it was embarrassing a bit. I wasn’t doing anything, he was just overreacting so much and I think I was driving normal I think he’s just not patient.

Tell him that you were not speeding and that he can take the bus if he doesn't like your driving.

Ask him at what speed you're supposed to drive at in for example a 30 zone and tell him to look at the meter? Speed feels different when you're a passenger. How long has he been teaching you ? Maybe he just doesn't know how well you can drive.
Or you can just slow down a bit, since he's giving you a favour?

He doesn't sound like a great teacher but it is often not appropriate to drive at the speed limit, even in good conditions. Part of learning to drive is about learning when you need to vary your speed to the situation - corners, parked cars etc - to below the legal limit and to learn to accelerate and decelerate smoothly without taking half your tyres off.

Yes and he’s been teaching me a few months. I’m not going to drive like a granny, it wasn’t even his car

It's the best to drive at the same speed as other drivers around you, the speed limit is a limit, not a target.

My driving instructor was saying I need to drive faster because in my lessons I once got overtaken by a women in a Nissan Qashqai that’s embarrassing

Who cares who overtakes you if you are driving a an appropriate speed? Embarrassment shouldn't factor into how fast you are going.

Your uncle can either keep his cool whilst teaching or he can't. I'd stick with a proper instructor tbh.

That's actually a very irresponsible and stupid attitude, it's not a race, people's safety is much more important and frankly, noone even notices if you've been overtaken by another car.

Embarrassing because it was a woman?
Or embarrassing because it was a Nissan Qashqai?

40 is the speed limit, not the target speed. If you are just learning it is perfectly normal to be going slower.

Personally if it was me I would tell him to get out my car,I can’t really control my temper and I would probably get mad at him for being in my car if he doesn’t like my driving unless i was actually driving really fast/speeding.

No need to shout like that at you, you are clearly not a boy racer. Someone is using you to make themselves feel good. Shouting is not teaching, unless he lost his cool for safety reasons then his behaviour would be excused. Otherwise knocking confidence is not teaching.
